Need an inexpensive and effective way of creating a steel structure for chemical and hazardous material use and storage? The emphases on recycled materials fits with utilizing used and new ISO Freight Containers where many would go unused rusting away stacked up in a depots.
There is considerable cost savings to be made from using a standard shipping container as the basis for a Hazmat building project as compared to constructing a similar sized structure from new concrete or steel of which a container will offer possibly more strength and security. Remember a shipping container has to meet ISO (the International Organization for Standardization is a worldwide federation of national standards).
These sea and land freight containers can be stacked loaded up to seven high, each weighing up to 30 tons and must withstand the rigors of crossing the high seas. They have no problem exceeding most blast ratings (designed to withstand a 5PSI chemical blast), wind and snow loads of the toughest hazmat building codes.
